From March 10 people will no longer be able to play Minecraft: Java Edition unless they create a Microsoft account.
The news was announced on Minecraft’s official website in a blog post. It was also said that this action was taken in order to ensure player’s safety and security.
However, there are some advantages which are meant to be beneficial for users.
Single account for all Microsoft games, two-factor authentication and improved safety are just some of the options which are supposed to make players’ experience much more enjoyable.
Players don’t have to worry about their data and game progress because all of this will be retained.
In October 2020 Minecraft announced its plans and explained all the changes that are about to become a reality. It has also said that everyone who changes their account from Mojang to Minecraft will receive a cape as a special reward.
